Fezzan and Artemis of Ephesus

The surprise of collecting stamps: whilst visiting Holland Abduswlam Huwiou showed me in an Italian catalogue the surcharges of the stamps Libya (Italian occupation) 1921 - Artemis of Ephesus.

value surcharge 1 fr on 25 c

Untill 1965 Libya counted three autonomous parts: Tripolitania, Cyrerüica and Fezzan. Fezzan is situated in the south of Libya and is in fact a basin of palm tree oases in the Sahara desert.

When you search for the surcharges beware of the prices. In the Italian catalogue are prices noted varying from 260 to 8875 Euros for the second surcharge unused.
